  • Panthers' Zac Dalpe: Gets on scoresheet in debut

    Dalpe scored a goal on his lone shot during Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the host Jets.

    Replacing Patric Hornqvist (upper body) in the lineup Tuesday, Dalpe made a solid first impression after arriving from AHL Charlotte on Monday. The 33-year-old center was initially listed as a scratch against the Jets, but he ended up scoring in his season debut. Dalpe, who only dressed for one game with the Panthers last season, notched his NHL first goal since April 19, 2021, when he was a member of the Blue Jackets.

  • Panthers' Sergei Bobrovsky: Grounds Jets in relief

    Bobrovsky turned aside 14 of 15 shots during Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the host Jets.

    Making his first relief appearance this season, Bobrovsky didn't allow the Jets an opportunity to turn Tuesday's matchup into a rout. The 34-year-old netminder had lost his starting role to Spencer Knight over the past few weeks and entered Tuesday with a bloated 3.84 GAA. Bobrovsky replaced Knight at the 21:43 mark, trailing 3-1, and allowed one power-play marker. The Panthers are 3-4-3 in their last 10 matchups, which could offer Bobrovsky an opportunity to open a game for the first time since allowing 11 goals on 46 shots during back-to-back starts (Nov. 20 and 29).

  • Panthers' Carter Verhaeghe: Stays active in defeat

    Verhaeghe scored a power-play goal and generated eight shots during Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the host Jets.

    Verhaeghe, who has collected three goals during his past two appearances, scored at 14:11 of the first period Tuesday, erasing an advantage the Jets earned just 51 seconds earlier. The 27-year-old center produced his career-high in shots on goal, topping his previous mark of seven he recorded while notching a hat trick against the Canucks on Jan. 7, 2020. Verhaeghe has scored with the man advantage during back-to-back outings, producing 10 power-play points this season.

  • Panthers' Spencer Knight: Gets pulled from start

    Knight yielded three goals on 15 shots during Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the host Jets.

    Knight, who was coming off a 35-save victory over the Kraken on Saturday, was yanked Tuesday for the first time this season. The 21-year-old netminder lasted just 21:43 against the Jets' offense, which entered the matchup leading the NHL with an average of 38.6 shots per game. With the Panthers going 3-4-3 in their last 10 games, it will be interesting to see if Knight (8-4-3) continues to get the bulk of the starts in favor of Sergei Bobrovsky, who stopped 14 of 15 shots in relief Tuesday.

  • Panthers' Radko Gudas: No timetable

    Gudas does not have a timetable in place for his return after going into concussion protocol, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Gudas was injured in Saturday's game versus Seattle. The Panthers brought up blueliner Matt Kiersted from AHL Charlotte on Monday as a replacement. Gudas has two goals, four assists, 49 shots on net, 41 blocks and 95 hits in 25 games this year.

  • Panthers' Patric Hornqvist: Shifts to LTIR

    Hornqvist is in concussion protocol and was transferred to long-term injured reserve Monday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    There's currently no timetable for Hornqvist's return but he'll be out through the league's holiday break at the minimum. Due to the nature of head injuries, the team likely won't provide much more information on his timeline until there's a definitive update. The Panthers recalled multiple players, including forwards Chris Tierney and Zac Dalpe, over the last two days.

  • Panthers' Anton Lundell: Ruled out for Tuesday

    Lundell (upper body) won't play Tuesday versus Winnipeg, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Lundell will miss a second straight game after being injured last Thursday versus Vancouver. His next opportunity to return will be Thursday's tilt with Detroit. Lundell has four goals and 13 points in 24 games this season.

  • Panthers' Aleksander Barkov: Won't play Tuesday

    Barkov (illness) will not be in Tuesday's lineup against Winnipeg, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Barkov is "getting close" to returning but he'll miss his sixth consecutive game Tuesday. The 27-year-old looked to be finding his groove offensively with seven points in his last four appearances. He could be back as early as Thursday against Detroit.

  • Panthers' Matt Kiersted: Summoned by Florida

    Kiersted was called up from AHL Charlotte on Monday, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

    An injury to Radko Gudas (upper body) in Saturday's game against Seattle prompted the move. Kiersted, who has appeared in 10 games with the Panthers this year, may be in the lineup Tuesday versus Winnipeg.

  • Panthers' Zac Dalpe: Up with Panthers

    Dalpe was brought up from AHL Charlotte on Monday, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

    The moves comes after Patric Hornqvist (upper body) was injured Saturday and moved to injured reserve Sunday. Dalpe has 10 goals and 15 points in 19 games at the AHL level this year.

  • Panthers' Patric Hornqvist: Lands on IR

    Hornqvist (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, per CapFriendly.

    Hornqvist was injured Saturday and he'll now miss at least three games as a result, meaning the earliest he can return will be Dec. 11 against the Kraken. The veteran winger has just three points while averaging a career-low 9:16 of ice time through 22 games this season. Chris Tierney was promoted from AHL Charlotte in a corresponding move.

  • Panthers' Chris Tierney: Joins big club

    Tierney was promoted from AHL Charlotte on Sunday.

    Tierney has three goals and 19 points through 19 AHL games this season. The 28-year-old could make his Florida debut Tuesday against the Jets.

  • Panthers' Marc Staal: Produces assist in win

    Staal notched an assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Kraken.

    Staal was credited with the secondary helper on Carter Verhaeghe's opening goal at 13:00 of the first period. This was Staal's second helper in the last three games. The veteran defenseman has three assists, 19 shots on net, 48 hits, 28 blocked shots and a minus-7 rating in 25 contests overall as a third-pairing defensive specialist.

  • Panthers' Eric Staal: Assists in back-to-back games

    Staal produced an assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Kraken.

    Staal had no points over his first month with the Panthers, but he's started December with two assists through two games. The 38-year-old also saw a season-high 18:15 of ice time, as the Panthers' growing injury concerns have opened up a larger role for him. He's contributed 22 shots on net, 12 blocked shots and a minus-4 rating through 18 contests, and with Aleksander Barkov (illness) not too far from a return, it's safe to assume Staal's role is set to decline soon.

  • Panthers' Eetu Luostarinen: Sends another helper

    Luostarinen logged a power-play assist in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Kraken.

    This was Luostarinen's first power-play point of the season, as he's usually confined to a more defensive role. He's been getting it done on offense lately, picking up an assist in four of the last five games. On the year, the 24-year-old Finn has six goals, eight helpers, 42 shots on net, a plus-9 rating and eight PIM through 25 contests. He's over half of the way to surpassing the 26 points he put up in 78 outings last season.

  • Panthers' Brandon Montour: Adds power-play helper

    Montour notched a power-play assist, three shots on goal and three blocked shots in Saturday's 5-1 win over the Kraken.

    Montour set up Carter Verhaeghe's second goal in the first period, which stood as the game-winner. This ended a two-game mini-slump for Montour. The 28-year-old blueliner continues to be a force on offense with five goals and 16 helpers in 23 outings. Nine of his 21 points have come on the power play, and he's added 71 shots on net, 31 blocked shots, 29 hits and a plus-2 rating in a top-four role.
